'While the world is fighting Corona, Deepti daughter of our officer Dr Venkanna got a job offer of Rs 2 crore in the USA. A matter of pride and encouragement for all of us,' Anjani Kumar, IPS officer and Commissioner of Hyderabad Police wrote on Twitter.

Anjani Kumar, IPS officer and currently serving as the Commissioner of Hyderabad City Police, took his time out to congratulate and extend his regards to Deepthi Narkuti who is making headlines for bagging a job at the multinational teach giant Microsoft with a stupendous salary of Rs 2 crore per annum. Selected as a software development engineer grade-2 group at Microsoft, Deepthi will be working at the company’s headquarters in Seattle, USA. Connecting with Deepthi over a video call, Anjani Kumar said: “On behalf of entire Hyderabad city police and all the family members of all police officers I would like to extend our hearty congratulations to you and your father Venkanna who has been a great source of strength as far as professionalism is concerned."

“We take it as a matter of great happiness for all of us that one of our family members Deepthi has brought so much of laurel," he further added.

Deepthi, in her response, said: “Thank you so much for taking the time and addressing this, I think this is very motivating and inspiring in spite of your very hectic and busy schedule."


Deepthi had been fielding offers from several offers from AAA-rated companies that lined up for her even before she could complete her postgraduate studies in MS (Computers) from the University of Florida. These companies included Amazon, Goldman and Sachs. After much consideration, Deepthi decided to take up the job offered by Microsoft. She is set to join the company on May 17. She had earlier worked as Microsoft Student Associate in 2014-2015.

According to The Hans India, Deepthi has received the highest annual salary package among the 300 students who got placed during the campus interview at the University of Florida.

But this is not the first time Deepthi has had her share of success. After completing her BTech degree from Hyderabad’s Osmania College of Engineering, Deepthi joined JP Morgan, an American investment bank and financial services company, as a software engineer. After three years of service at the company, Deepthi was keen to pursue higher education. Following significant effort, she bagged a scholarship at the University of Florida where she went on to pursue her MS program.

Her fondness for coding can be seen from her LinkedIn bio wherein Deepthi had stated her belief that technology can have a significant impact in transforming lives. Back in her family, Deepthi’s biggest support is her father DrVenkanna, who is a forensic expert in the Hyderabad Police Commissionerate.
